Here starts my first training progress entries! While I have not started the official Charm City Run training for the Maryland 1/2 Marathon on May 15, 2011, I have been running. With my trusty Under Armour Coldgear, I ventured outside this week and ran 3.5 miles.
I have been averaging about 8-12 miles a week since I started running last year (with a few weeks hiatus after a car accident). Charm City run wants you to be up to about 15 miles per week and able to run 4 miles at a time before starting training. I feel pretty confident this will be doable for me.
So, right now, I'm alternating between running outside when it's more than 26 degrees and inside on the treadmill when it is too cold.
I start formal training in February with Charm City Run. This means that I'll be staying in lots of Friday nights as the Saturday morning runs start at 8am.
Thanks for all the support and the donations for Marlene's Mission so far!
